OS Multicomputer Hardware
The basic node of any multicomputer consists of the following:
- Central Processing unit
- Network interface
- Hard Disk
Basically, the node of a multicomputer may be packaged in a standard personal computer case, but the following are nearly always absent:
- Graphics Adapter
Sometime instead of a single central processing unit, personal computer contains a two-way or four-way multiprocessor board, but for simplicity purpose, we will assume that each node has only one central processing unit.
Sometime, hundreds or thousands of nodes are hooked together to form a multicomputer.
